Setting Up a Virtual Event

Created by Will Rogers, Modified on Tue, 06 Sep 2022 at 11:59 AM by Will Rogers

Step 1 - Create an Event

Start by creating an event from your Mission Control.  You may need to contact Cause Machine to open permissions for hosting a Virtual Event depending on your subscription plan.


Mission Control




Step 2 - Load General Information

Next enter general information to get your event initially setup.  This step is one page and will take you just a few minutes to complete.  Here's what you need to get started:

  • Event Name - what is the title you want people to see for this event?
  • Date Range - enter the event start and end date and time (make sure to enter the time zone too)
  • Event Type - choose virtual event
  • Event Privacy - most are public
  • Event Overview - basic over of event that displays on the event page
  • Event Info - additional event information that's visible when a viewer clicks a "view more" button
  • Registration Windows - how long does someone have to register for the event
  • Logo - add an event logo (this is a different file from your community logo but maybe the same logo - if the same you still need to load the image here)

Initial Setup Page | General Event Tab



Registration Window Settings | Event Logo



Step 3 - Publish

Once complete, click publish (or save as draft if desiring to keep the site in a draft mode).
